Dream car of the week: Land Rover Range Rover Vogue

Every week we bring you a dream car, you know, the one you’d buy if you won the lottery.

THE LAND ROVER Range Rover is one of the best luxury cars money can buy. Think of it like a Bentley wearing hiking boots – luxurious, refined but rugged and ready to tackle all terrain.

The interior is wonderful. The driving position is haughty – I mean high – and offers a full view of the large bonnet. The cabin is sleek and clean with most functions controlled by the touchscreen. The materials are top quality and the fit and finish are impeccable.

The Range Rover handles and rides really well. It is a massivley capable vehicle and manages all type of terrain superbly. It is refined and you hardly notice any engine, tyre or wind noise. And the eight-speed transmission is smooth and slick.

The Range Rover is definitely the car you want to be driving on long trips as it is easy to manoeuvre as well as being extremely comfortable and relaxing. It is also wonderful for passengers as there is so much leg and headroom in the front and the back.
